Coach Solich to be honored at Spring Game


Coach Solich has respect for Coach Rhule.

I completely agree. TO would have had a tough time matching his magical run had he stayed on another 5-7 years and I'm not sure there was another coach in the nation at the time that could have taken over for TO and kept that momentum for another 6-10 years.

I think something between Pelini level and Osborne's 'typical' years was certainly achievable. What some folks thought should happen was 60-3 type runs in perpetuity, and that's just not happening. Osborne wouldn't have done it again.

Agreed but I bet he wouldn't ever have gone 7-7.
 
I think most reasonable folks look back and realize the staff assembled in 2003 that went 10-3 deserved an opportunity to continue to prove themselves.

A lot of us remember a good number of folks who wanted to run TO out of state each year prior to his last 4-5 years when he had similar records. Couldn’t recruit, couldn’t win the big game, not innovative, etc. The early Austin 360 days were brutal.
 



We can talk about coaches all we want … their strengths and weaknesses, their successes and failures … but the demise of Husker football is directly related to the poor leadership at the ultimate levels of the school and athletic program.

Even back to the days of Bill Byrne, who was already with one foot out the door, allowing TO to control the process of replacing TO. Pederson, Osborne, Eichorst, and even Moos … not controlling the process of hiring and managing the football coaches. TA is truly the first AD since Byrne who seemed to be ego-less, a uniter, calm, reasoned, and capable.

FS deserves this honor, and more … frankly, whether he was good enough or not he bleeds Husker red through and through.
